(AP) — Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes is touring Kentucky to promote the state's new online voter registration system.
Grimes unveiled the voter registration portal, GoVoteKY.com, this week at the state Capitol.
Her first stop on the tour was a town hall Wednesday at Northern Kentucky University. Several students used the portal at the event to register to vote for the first time.
Kenton County Clerk Gabrielle Summe says online system will make voter rolls more accurate and offers a convenient way for Kentuckians to register.
Grimes' tour includes stops at each of Kentucky's public universities ahead of the April 18 deadline to register to vote for the May 17 primary election. She will visit the University of Louisville on March 31 before traveling to the state's other institutions next month.
